A Druid’s Perspective
What does it mean to practice Druidry during the climate emergency? What should we be doing? What is the role of a Druid right now?
One of the roles we can take on is to give a voice to the voiceless. All the non-human life of this world, and all the people who do not speak the languages of dominant western cultures need hearing. The land needs a voice. Future generations need a voice. Someone must speak for the oceans and rivers, for the droughts and the fires, the storms and the instability. We can do this.
It’s not just about raising awareness. We need to inspire people with feelings of care and compassion alongside helping them feel they can make a change.

What a fabulous way to cleanse away the old energies and enter into a new year and decade! Blessed BE!
Time to get ready for the new year!
That means out with the old and in with the new.
There’s a sense of optimism in the air, hope for the future as we make plans for the upcoming year:
what we want to do, what we want to let go of and/or forget and what we can do to bring ourselves one step closer to realizing our dreams.
Each year should be a stepping stone that builds on the year before as we move forward.
Every year will have ups and downs (some years worse than others), but when we reflect back over several years, often we can see how far we’ve come since then.
Clear Your Home and Energy
Cleansing your home before the new year begins or shortly after the new year begins can be an great way to prepare for the upcoming year and to make sure…

Tlachtga, Forgotten Celtic Goddesses a very interesting article.
I am the Sun – bringer of the warming light of day. I am Lightning – bringer of fire to Earth. I am Tlachtga who flew through the sky together with my father Mog Ruith in our glowing wheel. I am destruction and creation. I illuminate the darkness and point to the pathway of light that resides in each of you. Over time I made my final resting place at the Hill of Tlachtga, where the great fire ritual of Samhain is practiced, reminding the folk of the promise of Sun’s return at the end of the time of darkness and dreaming.
